Honey and Clover | Chicago Reader

Honey and Clover

Based on Chica Umino's best-selling manga and hit anime TV series, this 2006 teen romance from Japan tracks five attractive collegians with budding art careers. Pop star Sho Sakurai plays an architecture student who's smitten with winsome painter Yu Aoi (All About Lily Chou-Chou) but soon upstaged by hotshot hipster Yusuke Iseya (After Life). Unrequited love accounts for so much of the movie that the narrative almost sputters from inertia, but production designer Momoko Nakamura conjures up a visual feast of sets, costumes, and artwork. Masahiro Takata directed. In Japanese with subtitles. 116 min.
